Public nudity is an important part of Canadian history, which is why Canada Post has announced they will be releasing two commemorative stamps honouring Wreck Beach, Canada's largest nude beach.

"I think many people are surprised to find out that Canadians love being nude," said Canada Post spokesperson Torb Henderson, "we wanted to do something that celebrated OUR nudity and it's place in OUR culture."

Canada Post will be releasing two stamps, one that celebrates the female form and one that showcases the male form.

When asked if he thought the stamps will offend some Canadians, Henderson responded by saying: "No, there is nothing offensive about Canadian nudity, which is why it will be the only stamp we'll be selling during the Christmas season."
